I permed my 2-year-olds hair for manageability. When will her curl pattern return?
The good thing is her curls will revert back to her natural curl pattern after the 12 weeks, but if you continue to use the texturizer over and over, it can completely change her curl. The key to an easy combing process is learning to properly detangle your child’s hair. I would suggest you try Carol’s Daughter’s set for kids: Kids With Naturally Curly Hair set. It contains the Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner, which makes detangling a cinch. It also has the new and improved Hair Milk Original Leave-In Moisturizer, which will hydrate her curls and help you define them so they’re easier to manage. Also, you must start detangling her hair with your fingers. The best time to detangle is while her hair is still soaking wet. Then use your fingers and start combing through the hair, it reduces breakage and fights frizz. Using your fingers won’t disrupt the individual curl pattern that has formed like a comb or brush will do. Lastly, try styles that you don’t have to comb daily and will help her develop an easier-to-manage curl pattern, like a two-strand twist set.
Carol’s Daughter knows that transitioning isn’t easy—that’s why the brand has founded TransitioningMovement.com, a site dedicated to providing the resources that women need to embrace their natural hair. This definitive online source on how to transition was founded on the idea that every woman should celebrate her own unique beauty. As women transition from relaxed to natural hair with protective styles, the big chop or long or curly grow-outs, we aim to support them as they brave the change with fun, informative and helpful features. Let’s get back to the basics of natural beauty.
